Russian scientists use fingerprint biometrics to match users with career picks

This could be the shortest career aptitude test you’ll ever take.

A group of Russian scientists have recently unveiled a fingerprint scanner that they say can detect the perfect job for anyone. According to a report in the Daily Mail, the researchers also think that in the future, fingerprints could even help reveal personality traits.

This particular scanner was shown at a career convention in southwestern Russia. The device compares fingerprint images to a database of fingerprint shapes correlating to specific jobs. The report says this database was compiled from a variety of previous employment studies.

Some users quoted in the Daily Mail article reported that the results given were pretty close to accurate, and others said they fell flat.
